Louisiana to Implement New Vape Regulations, Sales Restricted Statewide
Louisiana to implement new e-cigarette regulations on November 1st; products without FDA approval to be banned.

According to a report from MyARKLAMISS on October 18th, the state of Louisiana in the United States is preparing to implement new regulations regarding e-cigarettes.


In just a matter of weeks, e-cigarette products that have not received FDA approval will cease sales in the state. Despite efforts by some e-cigarette shops statewide to challenge the law in court, a decision has yet to be made. This new law in Louisiana is set to take effect on November 1st. Originally intended to tax e-cigarette products, it has been revised several times and now stands as a law that restricts the use of these products statewide.


The widespread use of e-cigarettes among Louisiana teenagers has been a major issue. John W. Sutherlin, a political science professor at Louisiana State University, stated in an interview with a television station:


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) expressed concerns about the potential impact of nicotine and e-cigarettes on the brain, heart, and a range of health-related issues, especially among middle and high school students whose bodies are still developing. This could pose a significant challenge.


According to new regulations, all manufacturers of e-cigarette products must register with the state's Alcohol and Tobacco Control Bureau by November 1. Failure to be listed in the registry will result in the products not being allowed for legal sale. As a result, some e-cigarette shops are currently liquidating their existing inventory before they are required to remove them from the shelves.
